Preschool & Kindergarten Prep

children learning in preschoolOur preschool students benefit greatly from our collaborative relationship with the world language, music, physical education and art teachers of Cedar Crest Academy. Each week, Cedar Crest Academy’s ancillary teachers visit our preschool classrooms to provide specialized instruction in Spanish, Chinese, music, art, and physical education. Cedar Crest’s world language teachers are native speakers who offer cultural learning experiences in addition to foreign language instruction.  Preschoolers enjoy large group games, tumbling, and traditional sports activities lead by our physical education teacher in Cedar Crest Academies full-size gymnasium. Our uniquely comprehensive preschool program is rich with meaningful learning opportunities to promote the physical, emotional, cognitive, and social development of young children.

Cedar Crest Early Childhood Center has multiple preschool classrooms for students, 2.5-5 years old.  We are committed to providing an individualized and accelerated learning experience for each student.  Class placement is determined by several variables including age and social/emotional development.  This deliberate and thoughtful process ensures that each student receives the support and challenging opportunities required to learn at their highest potential.
